NaPoWriMo – Day 26

My trusty shoes! Old now, but it’s like wine with shoes isn’t it? The older the vintage – the better the fit, that kind of thing?! No? Is it just me with my weird feet that take their own sweet time to get friendly with their footwear?! But once they do…Oh the JOY πŸ˜€ The comfort of a well-fitted shoe is one of the best feelings in the world! They slide on and off your feet like a second skin – cushioning, painless and easy. They make you feel like you could walk to the Moon and back and be none the worse for wear πŸ˜‰ Oh well, to the Market down the road then πŸ˜›

This well worn pair has traveled with me on many journeys and walked down many exciting roads! They’ve stepped in puddles and worse, been stamped on, drenched in the rain, splattered with mud, served as bug-home on occasion – and survived! They’ve jumped for joy and danced to music and on occasion have caused painful blisters (but that was when they were young and immature ;)) – rather like the feet in them πŸ˜› Today, almost 5 years after I first bought them – they are still my favorite, trusted travel shoes. I have others, (Of course I do! Girls and shoes – you get the picture ;)), but none that fit or feel quite like these – good, solid, with a rubber sole and a steady grip, they make me feel like I could walk forever. Honestly, I couldn’t ask for a better companion on my journeys! So a trip around the world or a walk in the park – I say…Bring it On!

  1. What a fun homage to your reliable pair πŸ™‚
    I’ve had a few pairs like that, that I wore to death. I had this pair of hiking shoes that I put MILES on. Then I wore them to Hawaii last October and a 14 (13?) mile hike in the volcano resulted in the biggest blisters I’ve ever seen that were not the result of a burn. Now I’m breaking in new shoes πŸ™‚

    1. Good Luck with the new pair πŸ™‚ It takes some work…certainly for me! These still have a fair amount of miles left in them I reckon…I would be loathe to say goodbye when the time comes πŸ˜›

      I love how you are such an outdoor person πŸ™‚ And I want to see pictures of that Volcano!! I know they’ll be incredible πŸ™‚
